About

The project provides a school and open home serving children. Its work revolves around the human rights and children’s rights established by the International Convention. They aim to prevent at-risk youth from turning to the street and to stimulate their development by strengthening their family relationships.

They accompany and support families with primary education and work training for children and adolescents who are on the street or at risk. Also, they establish a space that pays full attention to children’s rights. Finding new homes for children and adolescents who are not able to reestablish connections with their families is also part of their work.
